More on Mahama’s Ovation Magazine interview; Mahama blames media for preventing his transformation message from reaching the people
President John Dramani Mahama has pointed accusing fingers at the media for constantly blocking his message of transformation. The President has complained that a certain group of oppositions in the media are blocking his government’s message; a situation which in his view, makes it difficult for people to know the truth.
In an interview with Ovation Magazine, Mahama blames media for preventing his transformation message from reaching the people. Mahama explained that this certain group in the media, have made it difficult for the public to discern properly, the fact that his government has done well for the people. He explained that, “as much as you are putting out the information, it is either being blocked or distorted,” by the so called group.
Speaking on corruption, Mahama said he has been assertive as far as issues relating to corruption are concerned. He said this with respect to series of media reports on Ministers, who have reportedly not conducted themselves over the years.
Responding to such reports, Mahama explained that there are tons of media outlets across the country where series of allegations are levelled against his ministers. He continued that he cannot jut take action on the basis of any allegation raised, but will investigate properly before taking actions, just like he has done several times.
The President also touted the achievements of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration towards the country’s economy. Responding to the various complaints on economic challenges, Mahama said his government has built a lot of infrastructures to create employment, which is the major problem experienced in the country.
He also debunked reports promoted by his major opposition, that the NDC is incurring huge debts. On that, Mahama said that Ghana’s debt profile has gradually reduced under his government.
